back to my favorite newspaper

I'm pretty sure I know why I've been spending more time on the computer, rather than less. It's my favorite newspaper, "The New York Times." The paper I was raised reading, raised to read, and now I can get it here via the internet.

In Israel, want ads unabashedly advertise for "young" people. In the states it's illegal. http://www.nytimes.com/2005/06/21/opinion/21tierney.html?th&emc=th

Now if you've ever wondered why many Jews make the stupidest political decisions, here's the answer: http://www.nytimes.com/2005/06/21/science/21gene.html?th&emc=th It's genetic!

I remember growing up when "bussing" black kids to white schools was a big debate in the states. The supporters had no problems, since their kids' schools weren't included. Things haven't changed: http://www.nytimes.com/2005/06/20/opinion/20herbert.html?th&emc=th Also in Israel, the people voting for Disengagement aren't, or don't think they'll be, touched by it. That's a major mistake, since all of Israel, and actually the entire world will be effected, very seriously effected, if the dangerous plan takes place.

Many years ago, when our home was on the "must see's" of foreign journalists visiting Israel, a "Wall Street Journal" reporter spent almost a week with us. My daughter (now the lawyer) told me that she didn't trust him. Why? "He doesn't take pictures." I told him, and he laughed: "The WSJ isn't that sort of paper." Now things are changing: http://www.nytimes.com/2005/06/20/business/media/20journal.html?th&emc=th

And more on insecure finances:
